Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I consider myself lucky after having my diabetes healed

My daughter booked an appointment for me with Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic.  She heard about him from her friend who brought her mother to see him having the same type of problems I have.  My daughter’s friend was pleased to see her mother was doing so much better for herself after seeing Doctor Stephen.

I have been going to the doctors over the years, but my problems were still there.  The only that changed, were the tablets and injections that I took on a regular basis.  I am an insulin dependent diabetic.  I take insulin injections twice a day.  I do it myself.  But if I am unwell, sometimes my rheumatism flares up and I get bad headaches and feel weak.  My daughter comes over to help me out and she gives me my insulin injections and my medication.

I am careful with what I eat.  I make sure I eat regularly.  I do my own chores at home need a little support from my daughter now and again to do a little food shopping.  Sometimes I get very tired, or my blood pressure is up and I have to rest the whole day.

When I came to see Doctor Stephen, he did a live blood test.  It was nothing new to me, because I have been giving blood, pin pricks, injections most of the time, I can’t remember how long!  But this time it was different, I actually saw my blood which was alive.  I saw it moving slowly on the screen.  It was a bit scary!  He also did a full body MOT, my blood pressure, cholesterol were also checked.  He then talked to me and wrote down a health programme for me to follow.  He also gave me a blood cleanser to take and some natural vitamins.  I applied a skin cream too which made my skin smooth and healthy looking.

I went back to see Doctor Stephen four weeks later and told him that I have never felt so much better in a long time.  My pain has subsided after two weeks. My cholesterol levels went down. I do not have any painful headaches and my insulin injections have been reduced when I went to see my GP who was surprised. God bless you Doctor Stephen!  My daughter is very happy with my progress too!

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- High blood pressure and diabetes completely gone

I visited Doctor Stephen Ferguson in the Natural Health Clinic two months ago.  I wanted a full body MOT done on me.  I have diabetes, I can lose some weight, it was creeping up on me and I felt heavy, my blood pressure was high and so was my cholesterol.  Overall, my energy level was not that great as before where I could do a number of things even after work and during the weekends.

Doctor Stephen did a live blood test and quizzed me with my daily eating habits and general life habits.   He took my blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

From the live blood test, he told me my blood could look a lot better than what it was at the moment.  To cleanse it, he put me on a health programme and provided details of changing my diet.  I wanted to lose weight, so that was also part of my health programme.  I followed the health programme for two months, where I ate foods that were recommended to me.  I also took natural vitamins, a protein health drink and a blood cleanser.  My skin was dry looking; I applied a natural cream that was recommended to me by Doctor Stephen to apply daily.  I also followed a strict exercise programme.

When I came back for a check-up, my blood pressure was half of what it was, so was my cholesterol.  My blood sugar level was well within limits.  My changed eating habits and health supplements paid off!  I lost two stones in eight weeks.  I am very happy with my achievement.  My discipline to lose weight previously wasn’t that great.  With Doctor Stephen’s encouragement and motivation, I achieved it at last! My skin dryness has vanished.  I use it daily as part of my routine. I continue to take my natural vitamins and eat the right foods that were recommended.  I also continue to exercise regularly.  Overall, I feel great!  My energy levels are like what it used to be.  I have the energy and feel lighter on my feet to be able to do other things after work and especially during the weekend.

I now recommend friends and family to Doctor Stephen for a full body MOT as I am very happy with my results.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- Hypertension

Hypertension is commonly known as high blood pressure that affects many men and women today. It is also referred to as hypertensive heart disease caused by the consistent elevated blood pressure in the heart’s blood vessels and muscles when left untreated over time.

Hypertension puts an extra burden on your heart and blood vessels to function normally and inadvertently may cause a heart attack or stroke. It does not stop there; consistent high blood pressure invites other forms of heart related diseases, it affects the kidneys and development of diabetes amongst other

health conditions. If your blood pressure readings are consistently high over time, then you may possibly suffer from hypertension.

How do I know if I suffer from high blood pressure? Simple – get it measured by a health expert. The signs of high blood pressure may not be visibly felt or noticed. Throughout the day, numerous things and situations can affect your blood pressure. A single measurement of your blood pressure with a health expert does not give evidence that you are suffering from high blood pressure. A number of blood pressure measurements are taken over time to indicate consistent high readings.

Blood and oxygen circulation in the heart are vital for the heart to function healthily. The beat of your heart pumps the blood supply in the body, giving it energy, oxygen, nutrients and removes waste for normal bodily function. As blood circulates in the body, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is known as your blood pressure. When you are told your blood pressure is too high, it generally means that it puts an extra burden on your heart arteries. Heart arteries are vessels that carry blood away from the heart and circulate to other parts of the body.

Visiting a health expert or practitioner will help you determine the measurement of your blood pressure. A blood pressure monitor is commonly used to help determine if your blood pressure is high. Blood pressure is measured in ‘millimetres of mercury’ abbreviated as ‘mmHg’ and documented as two numbers. An example of a blood pressure reading is ‘130/90’, shown as two numbers or two levels. They are shown as one number on top of the other number. The first number that is to say the top number is your systolic blood pressure. In this example, 130 is your systolic blood pressure. It indicates the highest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart beats. The second or bottom number is your diastolic blood pressure, in this example 90. It indicates the lowest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart relaxes between your heart beats. Understanding the readings of your blood pressure measurement is best understood by consulting a health expert or practitioner. Apart from using a blood pressure monitor to measure your blood pressure, there are other appropriate tests and medical technology used by health experts to determine the probability or severity of your hypertension.

High blood pressure is a major risk factor as we age. With aging, the heart arteries gradually stiffen and the larger arteries lose its elasticity. At times, those who suffer from consistent elevated blood pressure may experience unexplained headaches. In extreme situations, you may feel chest pains radiating to the neck, back and arms, a feeling of tightness in the chest, difficulty in breathing and unusual tiredness with the activities of daily living. Swelling and tenderness of the ankle and feet may also be noticed. You may also feel your heart is beating fast or erratically. Do not hesitate to get medical attention immediately if you feel unwell with the symptoms mentioned above.

If you suffer from high blood pressure, regular health check-ups are beneficial and extra care should be given to prevent other heart related and health conditions. Hypertension is not a single disease. It is usually related to different heart problems caused by the heart straining under constant pressure. If the condition is left untreated, naming a few, it may lead to other complications such as coronary artery disease also known as atherosclerosis. It is a disease of the heart arteries where plaque and unhealthy fatty deposits builds inside the blood vessels. With the added complication of high blood pressure, it inadvertently puts added stress and weighs down the walls of the heart arteries potentially requiring medical help, constant medication and potential surgery. Heart failure is another complication. Over time the heart’s pumping action to circulate blood gradually weakens. Blood circulates through the heart and body at a slower rate which builds pressure in the heart to supply oxygen and nutrients to vital organs in the body. As a result, heart failure becomes an extended health problem. The heart copes by stretching and expanding or becomes stiff and thickens the heart muscles to hold more blood to circulate in the body.

Hypertensive heart disease is potentially dangerous. Consistent high blood pressure may result in the unfortunate circumstances of death. Take the example of coronary heart disease, consistent high blood pressure causes the blood vessels to narrow over time and inadvertently constricts the blood and oxygen circulation in the heart. Varying degrees of pain is experienced in the chest and causes one to feel afraid, pressure in breathing and panic occurs.

High blood pressure is treatable and can be prevented. It is important to realise that the higher your blood pressure rises on a constant basis and left

untreated, the higher the risk of contracting heart disease or stroke in the long run. It starts with YOU actively engaging in your health welfare to help lower your blood pressure whether we have it now or later. There are many things you can do to lower the risk of suffering from the complications of high blood pressure.

Lifestyle changes are necessary to prevent and control the complications of hypertension. Seeking regular medical advice and health experts guidance helps promote peace of mind for you and your family. It also boosts your confidence by consciously knowing that you are actively engaged in controlling your health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Review your eating habits and dietary intake. The general rule is to have a healthy diet consisting of low salt intake and unhealthy fatty foods will help you reduce the risk of hypertension in the long run. Exercising regularly, adequate rest and sleep, maintaining a healthy weight, reducing the consumption of alcohol, stress and stop smoking altogether are all key habits to a better lifestyle that prevents hypertension.

Interesting statistics extracted from the “Blood Pressure UK” website seen on 3rd March 2015:

* The risks increase as blood pressure rises, whether you have high blood pressure or a normal blood pressure – between the age of 40 and 70, for every rise of 20mmHg systolic or very 10mmHg diastolic the risk of heart disease and stroke doubles; for the range 115/75 up to 185/115mmHg. (6)”

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I can’t believe that I got an all clear of hypertension and hypothyroid

I suffer from several different ailments. I have high blood pressure, my cholesterol is high and most times I am so tired because I suffer from hypothyroidism. I am also overweight. I was not happy at all with the way life has come to! I suffered from headaches because my blood pressure was always high. I do things at a slower pace and my concentration was not good at all. I find myself sleeping a lot. I have to cook for the family in the afternoon which is such a great struggle for me what more go out and do the shopping, pick up the kids and run errands. This was not the type of life I had previously. I was always energetic and relatively happy with my life. I went to the doctors over a period of time and came back with more prescription. I had to watch my diet because of my cholesterol and my weight was catching up on me. Nothing I did seemed to bring it down. My blood pressure was always high too! My GP advised me to lose some weight. I started to worry a lot. My tiredness got me down because everything became a struggle to do.

A friend recommended that I make a visit to Doctor Stephen Ferguson. It was a little bit of a track to get to him because I live outside London. Actually it was my friend who came along with me because she really believed that Doctor Ferguson can cure the health problems I have. She previously suffered from hypertension, high cholesterol and painful shoulders.

Doctor Ferguson was very kind to me. He took the time to listen and provided encouragement. He did a live blood test and an 8 week programme. Within a matter of a week, I started to feel better. I felt my energy picking up, I don’t feel slow or lazy. In the second week my blood pressure was pretty normal. My cholesterol level has gone down. And my biggest blessing is to lose three stones in the last two months. I can do things a lot better. I can read in the evenings without falling asleep after 10 minutes! I am so happy.

Thank you Doctor Ferguson. You are really good at what you do! I highly recommend my friends and family to Doctor Ferguson.

 

 

 

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- High blood pressure is in the past, outstanding!

I was recommended by my colleague to visit Doctor Stephen Ferguson. My colleague suffered from high blood pressure and arthritis. He was very happy about the visit. His blood pressure is back to normal and the pain in his knees was gone!

I saw Doctor Stephen’s website and read a little about it. I liked the testimonials of his satisfied clients. There were people like me with high blood pressure that was totally cured, like my colleague. So I booked an appointment to see him.

When I visited Doctor Stephen Ferguson, I explained my high blood pressure problem which gives me occasional headaches. My blood pressure was constantly high. He did a live blood test on me. That was the first time I ever saw my blood cells on the screen! I did not know much about it until he explained to me. But the biggest surprise came after my check ups with him. When the live blood test was done again twice after, what a big difference. But the real good news for me is that my blood pressure is back to normal. When I went to see my GP he was very surprised and asked what had changed! I told him of the natural health visit with Doctor Ferguson and the eight week programme he put me on. I continue to take the vitamin supplements. I also got a couple of skin creams that worked well for me and my family. It is all natural. I feel healthy, energised but most of all I am so thankful my blood pressure does not give me any trouble any more!

I now recommend friends and family to visit Doctor Ferguson and do it the natural way to achieve optimum health! So far, I have brought my mother to the clinic who suffers from arthritis and high blood pressure. My girlfriend’s close friend has taken both mother and aunt to the clinic as well. They are all pleased with their health progress and have a lot to say about Doctor Fergusons expert advice and his kindness. God bless you Doctor!

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- Happy to lose weight and my cholesterol gone down

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson ten weeks ago. I have been struggling to lose weight and wanted some help to lose weight the natural way. I also suffer from high cholesterol when I got it tested. I try to look after my health as much as possible; my family line suffers from heart problems. So, when I was told I had high cholesterol when I got it tested, I was not happy with it. I read about eating right but I wanted something extra to help me keep motivated and to be on the right track. I heard about Doctor Stephen Ferguson through a family friend. He is a natural health practitioner.

I visited him ten weeks ago. I told him about my cholesterol problem and the desire to lose at least a stone and keep it off! I told Doctor Ferguson that I tried different diets but did not get satisfying results when I stopped it. I dieted quite a bit but kept on putting the pounds back when I went back to my eating habits. I don’t each a lot of junk food but when I get off the diet, the weight comes back. He did a live blood test, went through my eating habits and the types of food I had on a daily basis, recommended an eating plan with me and also provided vitamins, health drinks and a blood cleanser. I also bought a skin cream which I saw displayed. It was a natural product. My skin feels and looks good and everything is natural that goes on my skin on a daily basis.

I am extremely happy with my visit to the health clinic. My cholesterol levels are down and I lost one stone which was my goal. I’ve kept it off ever since he put me on an eight week programme. With Doctor Ferguson’s guide in choosing the right foods best for me, it has worked well. It complements the right eating habit for me, I also feel a lot more energetic. I do not need to go on any specific diet fad but keep to eating the right foods and the right vitamins and blood cleansers. It works a treat!

I totally recommend Doctor Ferguson if you need the motivation and natural way to lose weight in a safe and healthy way!

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- Extreme tiredness, high blood pressure gone

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson two months ago. I was suffering from very high blood pressure, painful knees and very, very tired most of the time. I am in my early 30’s. I was afraid that I was not getting better with the different health problems and I did not want to be tablet dependent for the rest of my life.

My knee pain was excruciating. I used to go to the gym three times a week because I wanted to keep fit for fear of putting on too much weight. It was an effort to keep it up to three times a week because my knees were playing up most of the time. Especially one of them. I had to be careful with the type of exercises I did so that my knees do not have further damage. I lost my enthusiasm at the gym because I could not train very hard. I was tired and in pain. Sometimes, I get up with tenderness around the knee joints. It could be worse on the left knee and then in a couple of days time, the pain will be worse in the right knee. I used heat pads, knee guards, rub balm on the knee and took pain killers to help with the pain.

I also had to be careful, because I suffer from high blood pressure. When I get my blood pressure checked, it always seems high. It was disappointing because I try to rest and tried changing my lifestyle a bit but did not get very far. My extreme tiredness reduced my social life to nothing at times especially during the weekend. I hardly had the energy to go out with my mates. When I am home, I sleep and rest during the evenings and spend most of the time indoors with my two children rather than taking them out. Sometimes I felt life was dull and boring. I know it was because I was unable to do much and felt unfair to suffer from high blood pressure in my 30’s.

I went to see Doctor Ferguson. He did a life blood test and then put me on an eight week programme. I listened to him and kept to it rigorously determined to get better. I am so glad to say that I see so much improvement. I took the vitamins, health drinks, blood cleanser and recommended exercises. I noticed my strength was back. I was able to go back to the gym. My knee pain disappeared. The stiffness and dull ache was not there, something I suffered most mornings. My blood pressure returned to normal which is a big relief. Overall, I feel great! Even

my children see the difference. I picked up my social life during the weekend and am so happy my tiredness is not a problem anymore. Thank you Doctor Ferguson for helping gain my life again!

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I have got my life back; fibroids, lethargy no more!

I was recommended to visit Doctor Stephen Ferguson by my friend who was helped with her problem of fibroids and tiredness. I looked up Doctor Ferguson on the website. His clients reviews were also very good. So, I decided to make an appointment and see for myself.

I have been suffering from different ailments -fibroids, over tiredness and hypertension for some time.

My periods were heavy, sometimes it lasts for a week and half; I feel so tired and am in pain. Sometimes I feel so heavy and do not have the energy to go to work. I started to get worried because the problem was not getting any better and I could not afford not to work. It was too early for me to think of doing part time work. I do not want to feel old before my time for sure!

To make matters worse, I also suffer from high blood pressure. Sometimes I get headaches, painful ones or just a dull ache for a while and then it disappears. I make sure I get my blood pressure checked regularly but it is still the same.

I saw Doctor Ferguson. He did a live blood test on me and put me on an eight week health programme. I took a combination of health drinks, vitamins, blood cleanser and an exercise programme. A diet was recommended and I stuck to it for eight weeks.

I can’t say enough, how I started to feel better in such a short time! My regained my energy and felt so much stronger. I did not feel so tired, I managed to pick up on my exercising. My dreadful period pains started to to feel so much better in the next couple of months. I did not need to take a couple of days off work by the second month. I went back for my regular check-up with Doctor Ferguson and told him how happy I was to feel so much better than I was. Even my blood test showed such a difference, my blood cells look so much livelier, like it was dancing on the screen!

It made me believe that I could get better with effort on my part and Doctor Ferguson’s programme, health products together with his motivation and kindness. Thank you Doctor!

I will totally recommend Doctor Ferguson any day and definitely to family!

Dr Stephen Ferguson- my arthritis treated at last

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson because I suffered from arthritis, oedema and high blood pressure. My arthritis was so bad that some times I could not come out of bed. My ankles were very sore and joints very stiff and this really restricted my movement. I had to buy shoes bigger than my size so as to fit my swollen feet. It was difficult for me to move around freely without hurting myself. The oedema caused my blood pressure to rise even more. I had to rely on tablets to control the pain. Even with the tablets I was still in agony.

 

I came to see Dr Stephen Ferguson for help. However the first thing he did was to do a live blood test where I could see my blood live on screen, this was scary. My blood was terrible, it was cramped together, and circulation was very poor. Dr Stephen Ferguson advised me to change my diet, eat more  natural products. He also put me on the 8weeks programme, gave me vitamins and food supplements. He also strongly urged me to do exercises however little, to help with blood flow and also with the swelling. After a few weeks I realised I felt different, a lot more energy. The swelling on my ankle went down and I could move around better than before. My shoes are slightly big now since the swelling has gone down. Even the GP was shocked when he checked my pressure and it had gone down. Being on the programme has helped me a lot. I lost 1.5stones.

 

When  I came back to see Dr Stephen Ferguson for check up, the live blood test showed that my blood was a lot better than the first time. I would recommend everyone to come to The Natural Health Clinic and do the live blood test. It is amazing.

Dr Stephen Ferguson- fibroids and high blood pressure finally cured

I came to see Doctor  Stephen Ferguson because I suffered from high blood pressure and fibroids. I had fibroids since I was 19 years old and I have now had them for 10 years. It started as severe bleeding whenever I got my periods and was very painful too. My energy was too low. With time it became worse that I felt vulnerable and would stay at home whenever I got my periods to avoid embarrassment.  I was always rushing to the toilet. At first my Gp was adamant about the bleeding, I kept complaining to him but kept pushing me away saying those were just period symptoms and just gave pain killers. It was until one day that the pain became so un bearable that I was rushed to hospital when the doctors mentioned something about fibroids. I became concerned about these fibroids that I pressured my Gp to make a referral for me to see a gynaecologist. Finally I was referred to a big hospital where I had an MRI scan that revealed 15 fibroids in total. The doctors even went as far as saying that my abdomen looked as if I was 6 months pregnant. They ranged between 4-10cm. This was very shocking and devastating news indeed. I cried like I had never cried before. I was so worried about what would happen next, I imagined I would never be able to have children. I suffered for a long time. I agreed for the doctors to do myomectomy but only removed 8 out of 15 fibroids. At the time I became desperate to have children that I went on IVF, but then I started missing my periods, so all those plans went down drain and went back to zero.

 

I heard about Dr Stephen Ferguson from a friend but had never really put my heart to going to see him. But I felt I was running out of options and very desperate to get well. I came to see Dr Stephen Ferguson at The Natural Health clinic. The first thing that Dr Stephen Ferguson did was to do a live blood test. My blood was terrible, it was all so clogged together that it made the circulation difficult. I was put on the 8weeks programme and given vitamins and food supplements.  After a few weeks on the programme, my abdomen started to shrink and has continued to reduce each week. I have a lot more energy than I had before. So far, most fibroid related symptom I had has either gone away completely or improved great deal. Even my periods are more regular than before I went on the programme. This has made a very drammatic and significant improvement to my quality of my life. I am definitely stronger and fitter as a person. I have a more positive attitude to life now as compared to before. My blood pressure has also gone down tremendously.

 

 

I would recommend everyone who has not done the live blood test to come and see Dr Stephen Ferguson for one.
